is the obama campaign saw early voting as a way to maximize their folks and bank the votes on their side. for example, when president obama is in ohio yesterday, he told everyone be sure to vote as early as october 2nd when you can start voting early in ohio. they want their folks to already start casting balance the lots in early october. >> the question wasn't about early votes here to stay. voting next weeks, ohio, florida, nebraska, new york, connecticut, some of the states. the strategy of having this comfortable, closing arguments, i don't recall this from either candidate at this point? >> you see two different philosophies from the campaigns. you have president obama's campaign team that seems like right now this is election day. let's start to get people out to the polls and get it done. the romney campaign says this thing isn't over. polls go up and down. they bank on november 6th when everyone is going to vote, but the romney folks did a good job with absentee voting and early voting in the primary season. we'll see if that carries over to the general election. >> a lot of mov
voters, or he can just run as -- if you don't like obama, just vote for me. i'm not going to fill in the blanks for you. that's what he chose. >> you claim the gop has not come to grips with the bush years. >> that's it. when obama came on to office, republicans made two decisions. one was they would fight obama on everything unilaterally. they treat him as this extremist, aradical, far left president and they do that. the other thing was they had to explain how a guy like that could get elected president. what they decided is obama became president because george w. bush in their view wasn't conservative enough. >> he was not ideologically pure enough? >> he sold out the conserve it active cause and dpagave it a b name and gave rise it to obama. >> you called it the single most effective line of the convention. i want to play it for our audience and talk about it. here it is. >> no president, no president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years. >> what makes that such an effective line? >> that's just
. >> louis, back historically, president obama got 41% of the white male vote in '08 and swung back to the traditional republican support for the 2010 midterms. when's the big influencer for them now? >> you know, i think again it's the economy. i think that these are the men, these are largely middle class men. we are not talking about -- i mean, the republicans are always going to win the white wealthy men. the swing voters here are the middle class men and those are the ones that have been hurt the hardest and not ideological. they're the guys that were the reagan democrats. they just a want and this economy has really, really hurt them. i think that they were looking at romney as maybe somebody, you know, that could bring them out of this. i think recent events and mistakes on romney's part hurt him with them, specifically the 47% comment he made in florida a few of the guys in iowa said they were leaning towards romney and shook them up, that he was a guy that was too wealthy and he was never going to have middle class interests. >> louis romano, thank you. >> you're welcome. t
obama has so many more paths to 270 electoral votes than mitt romney does. as you mentioned mitt romney pretty much has to run the table among all the battleground states to be able to hit 270 electoral votes. that's according to our nbc battleground map as well as others including the ap just showed there. that is a challenge for mitt romney. i'll add something else, our nbc/"wall street journal" mar rist poll sur vaied nine battlegrounds and president obama was ahead in all states from two points to seven points. that shows the hurdles that mitt romney has, even though the race is close. >> we talked about early voting and we know as i mentioned ohio and several other states have to correct the math if i'm wrong here, hard to keep up at this point, i think it's around 30, so many states with early voting at this point. this is before the big debate and millions of eyes will be on the debate, whether in its long form or clicking on to clips that will hit the internet within minutes of it coming out of the candidate's mouth? >> that early voting is why this debate is probably more impor
